We don't know (it's not a datamining operation), but we are curious :breadthink: If you did take the quiz and still remember, we'd love to hear! If you are an archivist and NES aficionado and can't wait to take the quiz, we'd also love to know your score 😍

Dear fedi, first of all apologies as we're going to potentially spam this timeline a bit. We're introducing the to an audience of art and design practitioners, as part of an event dedicated to alternative tools and platforms:

It is a presentation that will take place entirely within the fediverse and best followed through the hashtag or here:

We are going to divide this presentation in two: a description of the fediverse in general terms, and what it can mean for the field of art and cultural production.

In total, there will be 10 toots spread over 10 minutes. During this presentation members and friends of the LURK instance will join us, as it is also a mini party for celebrating our 3 year anniversary on the fedi!

Hello! @r and I are doing a workshop for tonight from 21.15 CET

We'll be performing the dataset of the Enron emails together., the library of artistic print on demand, has been just launched. I'm very glad Andreas Bülhoff and Annette Gilbert put together this labor of love. POD, which goes well beyond a system of production and distribution, means a lot to me and it has deeply influenced my work.

Our collective discussion 'Toward a Critique of Algorithmic Violence' is now out in with International Political Sociology. Written by Rocco Bellanova, Kristina Irion, Katja Lindskov Jacobsen, @francesco Ragazzi, Rune Saugmann & Lucy Suchman we foreground questions of algorithmic violence |
